I had a direct blow to the chest wall and it caused me a rib injury. I feel the pain and tenderness over the whole injured area. Also, I feel pain when breathing, moving or laughing. I don`t think that a rib tenderness is something to worry about and think there is no need to go to the hospital but would like to hear something about the treatment.

Hi. I`ve had a rib injury and it was all painfull. To take care of your rib tenderness simply rest. Put an ice pack over the injured area for some 20 min. every 3 hours for 3 days, until the pain disappears. Take some pain killers. Use a rib belt- it limits movement of your ribs when you cough, breathe, or move your body. It usually takes a month for a bruised rib to heal (broken ribs take 6 to 8 weeks).
